Welcome back,

I appreciate your repeat business!

The legal age to consent to sexual activity is 16 in North Carolina. Since both your nephew and his girlfriend are over the age of 16, consensual sexual activity is permissible under the law

I would be glad to respond to any follow-up questions that you may have.
